fwiw, concrete discussions on how to actually improve comps so that it
scales to the order of magnitude more packages + many many many more use
cases we have are welcome.  We had a long discussion about it at the
FUDCon in January, but no one was really happy with the idea we came up
with (as it introduced new problems and didn't solve all the existing
ones) and so we continue to live with where we are.
